Working with Search Results in 25Live Pro

About

After Searching for Events, Locations, Organizations, and Resources or Searching for Tasks, you are presented with a view of search results.

There are three view choices for search results.

You can view search results in three types of views:

  • List view
  • Calendar view
  • Availability view (for Locations and Resources)

List View

List view search results are presented in a list within a table. There are several controls and options available to change the results, order, and view of search results.

To View Additional Pages of Search Results in List View

Use controls at the bottom of the list to navigate and change how many results are displayed per page.

There are navigation controls at the bottom of the search results list where you can go to the next page, the last page, or jump to other pages of results. You can also choose how many results display on each page.

Hint: Favoriting Items

You can star items from the search results list.

To Sort Search Results in List View

Many columns in the search results table can be used to sort results. Click on a column title to see if the column is sortable. If so, the data will sort in ascending order. Click again to sort in descending order.

The column that the results are sorted by will display in bold.

To Choose Which Columns Display in List View

Use the Choose Columns button to reveal a list of all available search result columns. Check the boxes next to any you wish to display.

To View Additional Details of Search Results in List View

Any search result information that is underlined will link to more details.

Click on the names of eventslocationsresources, and more to go to each item's details view. Any piece of information in the search results table that is a link to more details is underlined.

Calendar View

The Calendar view shows you an easy to read grid of days on which events take place, locations or resources are booked, or events associated with organizations. This view also allows you to create events in the displayed locations by using the create event icon in the calendar grid.

To Change the Time Span Displayed in the Calendar View

Use the time span controls to choose how many days display in the Calendar view.

You can choose from three different time span settings in the Calendar view of search results:

  • 3-Day
  • Week
  • Month

To Change the Start Date of the Calendar View of Search Results

Use the date picker to choose which dates to display in the Calendar view.

Click on the date to reveal a date picker, then choose the start date of the 3-Day, Week, or Month span of dates displayed.

You can also use the arrow buttons at the bottom of the calendar grid to shift the dated display backward or forward in time.

Availability View

The Availability view of search results is only available when searching for Locations and Resources. The view consists of three main parts:

  • Availability toolbar at the top
  • List of locations or resources along the left with the option to star or unstar each
  • The availability grid with the display of hours along the top of the grid
    • This view allows you to not only view availability for specified hours on a single date, but also see utilization and create events for the displayed locations or resources during the hours in the grid by using the create event icon in the grid squares.
       
Hint: Favoriting Items

You can star items from the list of locations or resources along the left column.
You can star items from the list of locations or resources along the left column.

To Change the Date Displayed in Availability View Search Results

Clicking on the date will reveal the date picker.

Use the arrows on either side of the date to go to the previous or next date. To view a new date (other than the previous or next), click on the date text to reveal a date picker.

To Change the Hours Shown in the Grid

Use the slider controls to change the hours displayed in the availability grid.

At the top-left corner of the availability grid are controls for changing which hours are shown. Click on the control icon to open the Hours display. Move the sliders along the line to adjust the hours shown in the grid for this list of locations.

To Change the Availability View Utilization and Display Style

The Availability view features different view modes to switch between.

  • Standard (default):  Displays simple availability with color codes indicating the status of events
  • Utilization Views:  Shows utilization statistics for locations/times in the availability grid based on various comparison choices

Standard (default) View

In the Standard view mode, the squares representing blocks of time in the availability grid are color-coded to signal different statuses of events.

  • Blank/White:  Available
  • Gray:  Closed hours, based on the location's open/closed hours
  • Black:  A blackout hour
  • Green:  A normal event with occurrence start and end times
  • Light green:  Setup/pre-event or post-event/takedown time around an event time
  • Orange/Beige:  Location unavailable due to a relationship with another location
  • Purple/Gray Slashes:  Pending location reservation

Colors indicate the status of locations or resources during displayed hours in the availability grid Standard view.

In the above example, the “Northwest Art Awards” event is scheduled from 3:00pm-5:00pm, shown in green, but the event also has setup/pre-event time and post-event/takedown time, shown in light green. Another event that day is shown in Orange, indicating the event’s location is unavailable.
 

Utilization Views

In the three utilization views (Utilization (RHC/CAP), Utilization (EHC/CAP), Utilization (RHC/EHC)) the squares representing blocks of time in the availability grid are color-coded to represent the percentage of the location’s utilization for that block of time.

When viewing availability in one of the three utilization views, events are color-coded to show the percentage of utilization.

    • Gradient Spectrum (white to blue):  White indicates the location is 0% utilized for that hour, with colors darkening along a spectrum to blue indicating 100% utilization
    • Grey:  Location utilization is complicated by one of the following:
      • The location max capacity is equal to zero
      • The location is a subdivision of, divides into, or blocked by a relationship with another location
      • The location assignment is shared for that hour
    • Red:  Location utilization is greater than 100% for that hour

You may choose between three different utilization view modes:

      • Utilization (RHC/EHC): Registered Head Count/Expected Head Count:  Shows enrollment utilization. 
        • For example, this view shows which sections can still register more students or are potentially over the enrolled (e.g. 38 students registered, with a max enrollment of 40) 
      • Utilization (EHC/CAP): Expected Head Count/Maximum Capacity:  Shows sections that might have room to grow in their current location.
        • For example, a section in which 40 students could register but the room holds 45. Or, conversely, a section that potentially could reach full enrollment but does not have enough seats in the current location. 
      • Utilization (RHC/CAP): Registered Head Count/Maximum Capacity:  Shows true seat utilization. 
        • For example, this view shows the number of registered students vs. the number of available seats in the location.
           

Note: Expected Head Count in Campus Solutions

Expected headcount is typically defined as the maximum number of students that can enroll in a section. However, if your institution uses the Campus Solutions SIS, your installation may be configured via your interface to import the section's “Requested Room Capacity” rather than maximum enrollment.

These utilization view modes are most useful when viewed in conjunction with the use of the Series25 LYNX Interface because LYNX exchanges up-to-the-minute registered headcount information between the Series25 database and your SIS (Student Information System). In addition, registered headcount and expected headcount values for combined/cross-listed sections are standardized in LYNX. If you are not already using LYNX, please contact your Series25 Account Manager to learn more.

Additional View Options

Three view modes in availability grid.

You can also change the view mode of the availability grid, choosing between:

  • Separated
  • Overlapping
  • Edit Mode

You can drag the event block to a new date and time in the Schedule availability grid.

In Edit mode, the availability grid allows you to change the event date and time by dragging the event's colored block within any available grid squares. Check the "Snap To Grid" checkbox above the grid to restrict times to half-hour blocks, or uncheck the checkbox to freely move the event to any time.
